    I know the feeling, I have a package "Out For Delivery" right now from this guy who does really good stains! I guess we are both tapping foot looking at watch!!! Can't wait to see your new git fiddle!

    It arrived safely, and it's very red although not as red as the first PS build I ever spec'd (bottom):

    Sorry for the pics taken hastily. I'll try to get better ones but these red finishes are horribly hard to capture:

    Summing up the initial thoughts:
    - The seller's idea of mint is not quite the same as mine. Nothing major at all, it's just that I'd list this as "Excellent" rather than mint if using Reverb's rating system. Can't complain given the price though.
    - This GY2 is much better looking that the one I briefly owned when they came out; the top on mine was very underwhelming.
    - The ideal guitar would be my build with the top of that GY2. The chevron figuring is exactly what I wanted, but couldn't find, when I was picking a top in the Vault. I could go with either ash body though, both work for me aesthetically speaking ;-)

    Overall I still prefer my bats in flights build in terms of playability, comfort, and tone but had no plans to replace it anyways.
    I got that GY2 because:
    1) I love the design and it was effectively a no-risk purchase.
    2) had I not pulled the trigger someone else would have bought it very quickly, and more importantly
    3) that someone could have been that dude who went crazy about Ish Guitars' Graveyard II.
    I basically adopted the guitar to keep it safe for a little while longer :D. Maybe to add insult to injury I'll send it to Ish for consignment once it's time to part with it.

    I am gravely serious when I say those are bloody gorgeous. Forgive me if I misspook.

    Wow, killer top indeed on that GY2.

    Curious what is it about the bats in flight that make it a better player and sounding guitar for you? Different neck carve and pickups?

    Beautiful guitar. :)

    Regarding “mint”. That just is inexcusable. Mint is mint. Period. End of discussion. Anything else is a lie. There is no “Mint except for.....”. Mint is actually the ONE rating that is objective. If it’s not mint, call it something else dammit! :mad:
